Question, do you just review items sent to you, or do you try to do comparisons of relevant products? Seems to me, it's not much of a comparison using a bunch of EK blocks and one Corsair.
How about Byski, XSPC, et al?

Hi, I checked their site and apparently there must be an error on the price in the English version of the page. I know German and I checked the German version and the price is
€ 129.98 *
* inkl. MwSt. zzgl. Versandkosten
which means "incl. VAT, excl. shipping charges"

Page 5:

"This is a fresh start for CPU blocks being tested on the LGA 1700 platform, thus I have chosen to have only new blocks here that have not been covered previously. This also allows all these blocks to have pricing including various logistics and material costs so that I can generate performance per dollar charts again. Apologies then, to other manufacturers, but to be fair, I don't have your LGA 1700 versions either."

I don't have any other blocks here for LGA 1700, as simple as that.

Thanks, I followed up with Alphacool and it's corrected now.

Aww, yours is more Pro than mine!

Alphacool really need credit for the ARGB connector they chose, as it doesnt fall out like the generic standard but also include a simple converter with all their devices
And the daisy chaining with them is so much simpler since the connectors are smaller and dont risk shorting out your PSU and melting cables by falling apart

Because of the adaptor(s) you can daisy chain as many alphacool and generic ARGB products as your 5v header can support and i've gladly abused the heck out of that

Hi,
Pretty bad to get a thumbs down on limited rgb
Thought it's minimal rgb was a positive aspect just like it's massive socket compatibility is to cripes we are so opposite :laugh:

It's on both the pros and cons list, just making sure people know what to expect given some will just see RGB (Aurora) and expect a light show.

TPU doesnt have a neutral category, as far as negatives go it's a good way of saying "nothing to complain about"

The model I have is the one size smaller with all the fancy ARGB, it's got more LED's than my christmas tree
